SOUTHLAKE, Texas -- Travelocity Business customers can book Amtrak on line.

With that development, it's clear that Travelocity Business -- Sabre's full-service travel agency -- is trying to differentiate itself from its online competitors by implementing features that already exist in GetThere's self-booking tool for corporations. Sabre several months ago folded GetThere into Travelocity Business.

In late 2002, GetThere launched the Amtrak functionality, with travel agencies fulfilling the train tickets. That option is still available to corporations. Travelocity Business said its fulfillment centers are now set up to handle Amtrak bookings.

Travelocity Business also tried to separate itself from the online pack when it announced late last year that it signed up large companies like Computer Associates and General Dynamics.

GetThere actually contracted those companies under a program called GetThere Full Service Option. GetThere Full Service Option still exists, but it's called -- you guessed it -- Travelocity Business.
